When the oldest operating inn in the country was destroyed by fire in 2011, Omni decided to create an upgraded version of this historic landmark. The Groton Inn “rose from ashes” with help from the Town of Groton, the Historic District Commission (HDC), dozens of investors, the Migis Hotel Group and the hard work of our development team.
Omni purchased the property a few years after the inn burned down and went through several iterations of design before gaining agreement on the final concept. The team completed the permitting process which included approvals from HDC, Planning Board, Conservation Commission and SWM Committee. Site work began in late 2016, construction started in early 2017 and The Groton Inn opened for business in May of 2018.
The goal was not to reproduce the old inn but to create a new landmark that shared the styles of the past while integrating the amenities of today. The Groton Inn, with an exterior that is similar in appearance to the original, has many upgrades and provides first class amenities for lodging as well as corporate and leisure events.
